Castle Park Project to celebrate the reopening of the Halton Curve
The Halton Curve is a short, but vital, section of railway track connecting the North Wales Coast Line to the Liverpool Section of the West Coast Main Line from Frodsham Junction to Halton Junction. Out of service for more than four decades; the line has recently been upgraded and reopened by Network Rail for hourly services between Chester and Liverpool.
Reinstating this vital piece of track meant unlocking key connections between Liverpool and Chester / Wrexham; opening new employment opportunities, generating additional tourism, alleviating congested roads and creating numerous additional economic benefits for local communities.
Refreshing Little Sutton Railway Station
Little Sutton railway station is one of a handful of listed buildings in Little Sutton. The charming building, built in the same style as other stations on the Helsby to Hooton line, has remained largely unused since the electrification of the line 25 years ago in 1994. But this is soon set to change…
Plans are being developed with both Merseyrail and Network Rail to introduce new accessible trains through the station by 2020, offering easier step free access for commuters. The exterior of the former ticket office is also inline for a much-needed facelift. The aim is to refresh the station, increase passenger numbers and create a better journey experience for everyone travelling through Little Sutton and beyond.
